Test results from samples of suspected Ebola cases from the Ashanti, Eastern and Upper East Regions have all proven negative, government has revealed.

There was fear and panic across the country following the death of a man who crossed the border from Pusiga in the Upper East Region to seek health healthcare at Bawku.

A similar incident was reported at Nsawam in the Eastern Region on Saturday when authorities at the Government Hospital quarantined two suspects who had reported at the facility with symptoms of the deadly virus.

But samples taken from all the cases - four from Ashanti, two from Nsawam and one from Bawku - tested at the Noguchi Memorial Centre have shown no traces of the virus in any of the patients, according to government sources.

The Presidency will be meeting the Inter-Ministerial Action Group on Ebola Monday, August 11, 2014 at the Flagstaff House to evaluate Ghana's Ebola Response Strategy so far.

The meeting will be chaired by the Chief of Staff, Mr. Prospoer Bani.

There is no known cure for the deadly virus but the World Health Organisation hopes to find a vaccine by 2015.

“I think it’s realistic," Marie-Paule Kieny, Assistant Director General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) told AFP, with clinical trials expected to get underway soon.

The epidemic, which has mostly affected Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, has been declared an international public health emergency by the WHO.
